, that america was always destined to succeed. but when the union was turned back at bull run and the allies first landed at omaha beach, victory was very much in doubt. when the market crashed on black tuesday and civil rights marchers were beaten on bloody sunday, the future was anything but certain. these were the times that tested the courage of our convictions and the strength of our union. and despite all our divisions and disagreements, our hesitations and our fears, america prevailed because we chose to move forward as one nation, as one people. again, we are tested. and again, we must answer history's call. one year ago, i took office amid two wars, an economy rocked by a severe recession, a financial system on the verge of collapse and a government deeply in debt. experts from across the political spectrum warned that if we did not act, we might face a second depression. so we acted. immediately and aggressively. and one year later, the worst of the storm has passed. but the devastation remains. 1 in 10 americans still cannot find work. many businesses have shuttered, home values h
i don't think american elections should be bankrolled by america's most powerful interests. or works by foreign entities. they should be decided by the american people. i would urge democrats and republicans to pass a bill that helps correct it some of these problems. i'm also calling on congress to continue down the path of earmark reform. democrats and republicans. democrats and republicans. you trim some of the spending. you embraced some meaningful change. restoring the public trust demands more. for example, some members of congress post some earmark requests online. tonight i'm calling on congress to publish all earmark requests on a single website before there is a vote so the american people can see how their money is being spent. of course, none of these reforms will even happen if we don't also reform how we work with one another. now, i'm not naive. i never thought that the mere fact of my election would usher in peace and harmony and some post partisan era. i knew both parties that fed divisions deeply entrenched. open some issues, there are simply philosophical
-- we begin this week, i should say, with america's middle class. as you likely know, ground zero for the failing policies of recent american politics. we're, of course, talking about the millions struggling to make ends meet, while paying the price for so many of america's outdated systems. whether that's two wars with no clear exit strategy. you know the narrative. funding a financial structure that takes money from the middle class as opposed to lending it to them. or broken health care system. not to mention a massive, inefficient, opaque government that continues to run record deficits and be dominated by special interests in a culture of cultural expediency. those middle-class families are the ones seeing layoffs at the astounding pace we have reported over and over again on this show and so many other places. they're also the people who are either losing their homes or they're stuck in those homes because the value of their mortgage is so much more than the actual value of the property at this point. compare a family of four in 2007 and compare that same family in 1971. whe

that this is matched by a historic effort that extends beyond our government, because america has no greater resource than the strength and the compassion of the american people. we just met in the oval office, an office they both know well, and i'm pleased that president george w. bush and president bill clinton have agreed to lead a major fund-raising effort for relief. the clinton/bush haiti fund. on behalf of the american people, i want to thank both of you for returning to service and leading this urgent mission. this is a model that works. after the terrible tsunami in asia, president bush turned to president clinton and the first president bush to lead a similar fund. that effort raised substantial resources for the victims of that disaster, money that helped save lives, deliver aid and rebuild communities. and that's exactly what the people of haiti desperately need right now. every day that goes by, we learn more about the horrifying scope of this catastrophe -- destruction and suffering that defies comprehension, entire communities buried under mountains of concrete, families sleeping in th

think, overall, the problem that the president needs to address is the domestic situation in america. it is the level of anger, of angst, of fear. i went home, andrea. and what i saw were three out of, let's say, seven shops on a block vacant. when i looked at the statistics, what i found was that small business closures in '09 were up 81%. so, that's what we're facing in california. i've got to believe it's everywhere else as well. so, i think taking action, particularly the action he's taking, by taking some funds that were used for wall street out of the t.a.r.p. monies and putting them toward community banks to enable them to lend to small business is extremely important. >>> well, you know, you talk about the angst out there. the president tried to deal with it. there were a lot of different tones in the speech last night. >> yes. >> he was responding to the frustration and anger of the american people and responding to some anger from wall street. at the same time, he was trying to criticize the republicans and say if you're going to continue to block everything we're going to

. why is light versus dark still an issue? maybe the broader america doesn't understand lighter skinned black people were treated better because they were seen more proximate to the dominant white culture, given better privileges in slavery because they were produced by unions between white men and black women. there is a huge tension in the broader society. lighter skinned blacks are seen tore liked by whites. negro dialect, what does that mean? jesse jackson is one of the most eloquent men we know, so is al sharpton. they all ran for president of the united states of america. joe biden made the same comments. mr. obama needs to step up to the bully pulpit and not be loathe to deal with the issue of race and say this is a teachable moment. yes, we can can accept the apology of mr. reid. let's deal with light skinned versus dark skinned and teach america about some of these more vicious issues. otherwise they do look like hypocrites in my book. >> i heard so many people over the weekend say they were surprised by this but you cover the election, as did i. there were people who did not u

change america. you were in iowa with me all of the republicans that streamed through in early january 2008, they were so hopeful. they said this guy will be so different. he's not a crazy left winger, not a product of the '60s. that's why he won iowa. in fact, that's why he won in 2008. we saw with the stimulus bill, with cap and trade, health care reform, every step of the way, mika, he chose to take nancy pelosi's approach, and henry waxman's approach, and barney frank's approach instead of iowa's approach and this is where it landed him. >> tell us a little bit, given what joe was saying, we hear from the white house one thing, but i was reading tweets all night long. give us a sense of what you're hearing on the ground in terms of how people feel. not only in terms of the direction of the administration, but why they vote for scott brown. >> massachusetts, arguably the most democratic state in this country, don't want someone who is beholden to a party. and how you govern like that and pass legislation, i don't know, because as a party you have to come together on issues and make

admitting there is no foolproof way to keep america totally safe. the president said agency reports showed a lack of coordination as well as a failure to connect the dots despite having information needed to stop that plot saying he's not interested in the blame game. he said the ultimate responsibility is his. >> i am less interested in passing out blame than i am learning from and correcting these mistakes to make us safer. for ultimately the buck stops with me. as president i have a solemn responsibility to protect our nation and our people. and when the system fails, it is my responsibility. >> well, one year now into the term, the president is the president spending enough time fighting terrorism or has he failed to recognize the gravity of the situation as his critics are claiming. bill press is a nationally syndicated radio talk to show host john feehery is a republican strategist. thanks for joining us. >> hi, alex. >> hi, alex. >> bill, i'll begin with you. the admission is taking a lot of new steps to try and create problems, which include assigning clear and culpable responsibil
's something i like to see and obviously a lot of my colleagues do, too. and i think a lot of middle america does as well. the whole issue of david plouffe coming aboard, washington and the media are fascinated by the cultive personality. and if president obama had already passed the health care reform and had an approval rating of 90% plouffe would still be brought in to help with the mid-term elections. axelrod is saying okay fly boy. time to come off the book tour and roll up your sleeves and get back into the trenches. he is a good hand but he isn't going to fundamentally change what is going on. he isn't giving different advice than david axelrod or robert gibbs. those guys come from the same place. it's interesting that this washington game, while it doesn't do anything different practically speaking inside the white house for the press and ultimately the public it resets the frame. in other words the press will writ something large into this motion that david plouffe has come into the mix and things are going to change because he is there. but that will actually help the obama adminis
mastermind in lower manhattan. plus, osama bin laden is criticizing america on climate change. lizz winstead will take a stab at that. >>> i think the big story tonight, the president going over to the retreat. the republicans made a mistake by inviting him to this retreat and letting the cameras actually take live this question and answer question. we're getting the truth now, folks. for an hour and a half, with no teleprompter, i might add, the president answered questions from members of the republican caucus on question after question, the president dismantled their talking points, exposed problems with their policies and pointed out their own hypocrisy, like when they've taken credit for the stimulus package that they voted against, the projects that they voted against. the president just appeared very reasonable, very knowledgeable, and focused on solutions. but the president let the republicans know, he's not going to be their patsy. he called them out for this social rhetoric on health care. >> we've got to close the gap a little bit between the rhetoric and the reality. if you were
